The final Dragoncon 2016 post!  Sunday afternoon was a vintage style themed outfit, much like my Star Wars Walkaway dress.  A Disney Princess Bleach Dress!  I was super proud of this one and it went over so well.  I had been planning to do a Disney version of the bleach dress ever since I made the Captain America one.  I think it turned out even better than the Cap dress.

I used Simplicity 1606 for the bodice, with straps from another pattern.  The skirt is a basic circle skirt.  The dress was assembled and finished minus the straps and bias tape before bleaching.  Then I arranged my princesses around the skirt and sprayed it with bleach, along with the cut strap and trim pieces.  I didn’t get a picture of the finished back on me, but I did remember to snap one when I finished the bleaching.  

The parameters of which princesses/heroines made it onto the dress fell under the category of “Cause I wanna.” In other words, I don’t care that some of them aren’t offical princesses.  The 16 ladies who appear, from back seam clockwise: Elsa, Kida, Esmeralda, Jasmine, Snow White, Pocahontas, Belle, Ariel, Tiana, Rapunzel, Aurora, Mulan, Cinderella, Meg, Merida, and Anna.  It took quite a few minutes for me to decide who went where.

I made the hat with extra fabric and gold sinamay.

I love this photo!! I found it cleaning out old emails. I think one of my biggest victory laps was doing a costume in spite of having stretch marks on the sides of my legs and thighs(this also went for my ME!ME!ME! costume), and also sewing a costume for the very first time! Sure, editing all of the “imperfections” out looks good and might have a flawless finish but I can’t forget to acknowledge that we’re all real people outside of this– not always as polished and pretty as these shoots allow us to be, regardless of how much I appreciate and love what photographers can do and their incredible artistic visions. We all have flaws and imperfections, but it makes us all so terribly human. I hope everyone is able to feel comfortable in their own skin, the way this hobby has allowed me to be in mine.
